It has been a good while since we saw a brand-new Master & Dynamic wireless earbuds. For context, the last True Wireless Stereo (TWS) buds that the brand debuted were the MW08 and MW08 Sports. These two wireless earbuds were launched back in 2021. Now, the brand is back with Master & Dynamic MW09.
And it seems the wait was well worth it. The new Master & Dynamic MW09 comes with a lot of improvements. These range from better battery to redefined design to improved acoustics. What’s more important is that the earbuds integrate an AI-enhanced feature to offer superior calling performance.
Main Highlights of Master & Dynamic MW09
As mentioned earlier, the brand-new Master & Dynamic MW09 brings a lot to the table. Here’s a quick look at the key highlights of the earbuds:
Premium Design and Build Quality
It’s not uncommon to see Master & Dynamic debut a product that comes with a premium build. The MW09 is not an exception in this regard. The wireless earbuds are made of high-quality materials such as Kevlar, sapphire glass, and aluminum. While aluminum is common in some earbuds, sapphire glass and Kevlar aren’t.
Now, while the Master & Dynamic MW09 is bringing a much-improved build quality, the brand hasn’t increased the price tag of the buds. The brand-new pair of wireless buds cost the same as the predecessor.
When it comes to specifics, the outer panel of the MW09 features a combination of sapphire glass and aluminum. It features a similar D shape that was present in the MW08 Sport and regular MW08. Master & Dynamic says that this design gives the MW09 better ergonomics.
In addition, the shape and construction reduce the weight of the Master & Dynamic MW09. Both of these will result in better comfort. The updated acoustic enclosure also plays a role in this factor. Master & Dynamic explains that it should offer a better fit across a broad range of ear shapes.
Another key design factor is that the outer panel of the Master & Dynamic MW09 has a circular section. It’s where the manufacturer has put the “M” branding. Although it may seem like a touch panel, it’s not. The unit has physical controls, which reside on the top edge.
Enhanced Driver Setup and Top-notch ANC
Under the hood, the Master & Dynamic MW09 equips 11 mm beryllium drivers. With these, the company promises the “most expansive sound profile ever.” The earbuds achieve that through many improvements made to the acoustic architecture.
In terms of Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), Master & Dynamic says that the MW09 brings an updated microphone that features an improved sensor placement. Also, the new wireless earbuds benefit from the new adaptive noise-blocking algorithms. They can eliminate more environmental noise.
AI-enhanced Calling Feature of Master & Dynamic MW09
The headline-grabbing feature of the Master & Dynamic MW09 is that it comes with a brand-new AI-powered calling feature. The brand calls it a “high-definition” speech setup, which aims to make you sound natural and clear even when you’re in challenging environments.

That means you can take a call regardless of where you are. And with this, the MW09 is positioning itself to join some of the best wireless earbuds for calls in the market.
The Master & Dynamic MW09 also shines in other important factors. For example, it can offer up to 16 hours of battery after a single charging session. And with the ANC turned on, the earbuds can offer up to 12 hours of runtime. That’s two hours longer than the predecessor, with four hours longer when you consider the battery life in the ANC off mode.
Master & Dynamic has also made a significant update to the Connect App. Now, the app offers a lot of customization features. That includes a fully adjustable EQ. Also, on the app, users can better monitor the battery levels. And let’s not forget to mention its fit test, which makes it easier to get the best possible fit with the MW09.
The app also allows the users to hear their own voice better during phone calls. When it comes to connectivity, the Master & Dynamic MW09 features Bluetooth 5.4. This is the latest Bluetooth standard available for wearables and audio accessories. Thanks to this, the earbuds can deliver seamless and hassle-free connections.
Moreover, the new earbuds from Master & Dynamic have Snapdragon Sound, which enhances its audio performance even further. There’s support for multipoint connectivity for easy switching between one connected device to another. Also, you get support for Auracast.
Pricing and Availability of Master & Dynamic MW09
The Master & Dynamic MW09 is currently available for US$349. As mentioned earlier, it’s the same price as the MW08 Sport. Besides, the wireless earbuds are available in white, gold, and black options.
But if you want to get the Kevlar version, you can choose from gunmetal, blue, and green colorways. This variant will cost you an extra US$50. All the color options of the MW09 will be available for purchase and pre-order on the official website from November 14.
